I'm not really having a big problem getting ahold of 9mm, I usually get a few boxes a week. Check out the gun shows, you might hit a score, and the gun shops limit how much ammo you can buy for each caliber, and they don't at gun shows (yet). Just keep your eyes peeled
Anytime there is a new push for gun control laws guns and ammo start selling like crazy. Demand increases faster than supply can keep up. It happened when Clinton banned so called "assault rifles". It's happening again now.
